The Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL Plc), in collaboration with its partners, Successory Nigeria Limited and MTN Nigeria, has launched the NIRSAL Farmers’ Business School (NFBS), a mobile learning platform that is based on Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology.
The initiative is to offer farmers leverage to increase their productivity through advisory services to be offered by experts through the communication as well as provision of information concerning markets and stocks.
Under the initiative, NBFS would provide convenient, bespoke training on good agricultural practices to Nigeria’s smallholder farmers who crave improved access to vital information, which is critical to the success of primary production cycles.
